Tironui Estate Hawke’s Bay Malbec/Cabernet 2010

Malbec from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Sep-2014
Dark, deep, black-red colour with garnet hues on rim. The bouquet is restrained, but shows good depth and presence, with savoury, earthy black plum and red berry fruits entwined with earthy elements, spices and oak cedar. This is Malbec expressive on nose. Medium-full bodied, deep flavours of blackcurrants and herb-infused dark plums are the feature on the palate. Cabernet Sauvignon is up-front. The mouthfeel is softly-textured with a tight, fine-grained tannin core and structure supporting and balancing the fruit. Lifted, spicy oak notes add to the depth of flavour, and the wine flows with good drive to a well-packed, lingering finish with plum, earth and spice notes. This is a softly concentrated Malbec and Cabernet blend with a fine-grained core and spicy, earthy plum flavours. Match with slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 5-6 years. A blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, co-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in new oak. 125 dozen made. 17.0+/20 Sep 2014 RRP $35.00
